XXXXXXXXXX and Health?

We have kept remarkably silent on the proposed funding cuts for the humanities and the proposed changes in higher education funding, both of which are likely to impact directly on our area of interest. There are so many reasons why Humanities are important, and so many reasons why higher education should be funded and supported publicly rather than privately, however, that I don’t even know where to start. Luckily there is such a thing as division of labour: the following essay does a superb job both of exposing the fallacies in the higher education funding proposal, and of demonstrating why humanities are important: historical awareness and coherent reasoning both belong in the humanities, and judged by both their presence in this article and their absence in the funding proposal, Britain needs to teach MORE humanities, rather than less.
